Message from Naqoura mayor on UN Peacekeepers’ Day
On the occasion of UN Peacekeepers' Day, Naqoura mayor Mahmoud Mahdi hailed the Blue Helmets who have been living side by side with the local population, sharing with them the good and the bad times, since 1978.
He said, "They have made sacrifices and they have offered social and humanitarian assistance.
They allowed us to live securely and peacefully.
They are part of our families, especially in Naqoura, which hosts UNIFIL Command's HQ, where 39 international flags in addition the United Nations and Lebanese flags are fluttering in unity."
